The legendary Hibiki represents true harmony.
The enigma of perfection, the paragon of the art of whisky and the art of Japan’s artisans.
Hibiki, meaning resonance in Japanese, speaks to the soul and emotions of the most discerning whisky lover. Hibiki resonates from nature, and all the subtleties found from the twenty four seasons of the old Japanese lunar calendar. Numerous types of pure single malt whiskies ageing in various types of casks, including Mizunara, a very rare Japanese oak, all combine to create a full orchestra of flavors and aromas.
Seductive, blossoming and enigmatic, Hibiki celebrates the unrivaled art of blending, fine craftsmanship, and sense of luxury of the House.
Bearing the seal of the House of Suntory, this majestic blend is its rightful paragon.
|From the magnificence of nature in the Land of the Rising Sun and the subtleties of its varied seasons
From the deep source of its pure waters
From the hands and hearts of its best artisans
Comes a whisky
Born from the Japanese way
Speaking to the soul and awakening our senses,
Taking us back to where it all began.

This unique fusion establishes Suntory Whisky as an art form.
An art form that has been established since 1923.
